In celebration of the 30th anniversary of the Guangdong Modern Dance Company (GMDC), a brand new dance work "Forgot the Taste of Sea" will see its premiere on November 11. According to Xing Liang, the director of this work, it aims to express the importance of staying true to the original aspirations of life.

Xing also introduced that various props with traditional Chinese characteristics were specially added to the show, such as long wooden sticks, folding fans, and hand-cranked bells, which is one of the highlights of this work.

In recent years, the festival has set up a special section for artists and groups from the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area (GBA).

This year, "Wu Du Hai", one of the dance works in this section, will conclude the festival on the evening of November 15. Choreographers living in Guangdong, Hong Kong, and Macao integrated traditional opera in the Lingnan area into modern dance, showing the theme of nostalgia.
